  • Basically what we have here is a drama, with comedy occasionally lifting the mood. The result is a surprising seriousness; this isn't the mindless romp with cute animals. Full Review

  • This is more a favourite of the children than adult Disney fans. It has a few memorable songs and has spawned a very popular stage production. Full Review

  • A hugely entertaining blend of music, fun and eye-popping thrills, though it doesn't lack for heart. Full Review

  • Everything's fine-tuned to perfection. The hand-drawn characters throb with life. The CG set-pieces yank your jaw to the carpet. The maddeningly catchy songs keep things from getting too bleak. And the story has more emotional kick than a herd of stampeding wildebeest. Full Review
